Here’s a 1975 “not so missing” card for former pitcher Pat Osburn, who put in a total of twelve games over two seasons in his Major League career:
Osburn appeared in six games for the Cincinnati Reds during the 1974
season, not factoring in a decision and posting an earned run average of
8.00 over nine innings.
He’d make it back to the big leagues the following seasons, this time
with the Milwaukee Brewers, again appearing in sex games, going 0-1 with
a 5.40 E.R.A., with a strikeout and nine walks over 11.2 innings of
After a nice 1976 season in the minor leagues for the Kansas City
Royals, which saw him go 7-4 with a 2.32 E.R.A., he would be out of
baseball for good, finishing with an MLB record of 0-1 with a 6.54
E.R.A. Over 12 appearances and 20.2 innings.
